No one talking about transfers so close to the new European season? I expected more. Anyway, I'll talk about some of the transfers that caught my attention during summer.

Mohamed Salah @Liverpool: I think they did a good deal in signing him in order to add more wide attacking options. However, I don't think they have done enough to strengthen their defence.

Alexandre Lacazette @Arsenal: So far, he looks good in front of goal, and should help Arsenal scoring more goals. Nevertheless, one could feel that the team hasn't changed much from last season.

Alvaro Morata @Chelsea: He has now the responsibility to replace Diego Costa. Regardless, he would have to change from being a super sub to become a regular starter; that's not the easiest task for any striker. He has the potential to be very good though.

Tiemoué Bakayoko @Chelsea: Signed from Monaco, he will have the task to partner his fellow countryman N'Golo Kanté in midfield. He's still young and a little raw, so it's difficult for me to say how he will do. Still, David Seaman compared him to Patrick Vieira on the other day.

??? @Tottenham: Signed nobody so far, and that's almost like taking the piss at their own fans.

Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker, Danilo @Manchester City: Knowing that they had to replace their older full-backs, they had to sign players. However, paying that kind of money now makes City's defence the most expensive ever assembled if you add Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones.

Romelu Lukaku @Manchester United: After Zlatan has been ruled out until the end of the calendar year, it was clear that we needed a proven goalscorer. Since our problem was goalscoring against lower teams, I'm happy that we brought him in as a flat track bully who can score against those teams. At the same time, I'm confident Zlatan will sign a short contract in January.

Victor Lindelof @Manchester United: Although he was very good at Benfica, he will need time to adapt himself at United. Still, I have learned last year that Mourinho can teach most defenders how to play as solid proper defenders.

Nemanja Matic @Manchester United: People knew that we need a proper defensive midfielder, but I didn't think it was possible to sign him from Chelsea even when they signed Bakayoko. Since the plan is to give Pogba full freedom in midfield, I'm happy at the signing.

James Rodriguez @Bayern Munich (loan for 2 seasons): According to what I can get among Bayern fans, he's one player they will love. He's always creating danger out there.

Corentin Tolisso @Bayern Munich: Record Bundesliga signing at €41.5 million, plus up to €6m in potential bonuses. That signing looks like coming out of nowhere, but it appears that he was signed to be a direct replacement for Xabi Alonso. It's quite a lot of pressure for this product from Lyon.

Leonardo Bonucci @AC Milan: It was a surprise for me. I really thought that Juventus would work harder to keep him, but there probably was a beef between him and Allegri. Bonucci will be a very good leader for AC Milan.

Neymar Jr. @PSG (to be confirmed): If this happens, he will become the most expensive player in the world. The transfer market is already out of control to a big extent, and it will be even more after that. On a humorous note, here is how JOE.co.uk describes the Neymar saga in the light of recent developments: WWE style.

Feel free to share your impressions. Let's talk about other transfers that slipped under my radar if any.

well, seems like Neymar to PSG is a done deal. La Liga rejects payment from PSG, but they can't do anything against Neymar whose representative pays the fee instead.

I am a Man U and real (basically CR7 ) fans so naturally I am welcomed with the news. More competition among the rich teams is better than nothing I guess.

Neymar has managed to anger not only barca, but la liga, and even Spain in some degree as well another tax scandal related to Neymar may be coming up in Spain in the near future XD

aside from neymar, it has been a pretty boring summer. nothing truly surprising yet, at least until barca decide to spend on replacements. the whole saga is kind of really sketchy. they qatar paid neymar for an "unrelated" expense (being ambassador of the 2018 world cup) and he used that money to buy out his contract and move to psg (which is owned by qatar). i would love if uefa or fifa investigated and found it was a breach of FFP and banned them from the CL.

Barca really messed up here. their board has been slacking the last few years, and now they only have an aging messi and suarez until they sign someone new. real on the other hand, have basically spain's u21 team on their bench.
